I like it too. Makes it worth the tank slappers.

Did some work on it today. Scuffed back the frame a little, needs more work but it's going the right direction.


A little concerned by the tank embedding itself in the frame. It isn't all the way through or cracked but it's deep.

Made a small box for the battery and electronics

There should be rubber spacers either side of the tank to keep it off the frame. Easy to lose when you take the tank off and if you lose one the other can fall out in use. If they're missing the bike feels bad to ride as the tank shifts around under you.

Looks like still available new, if you don't have anything around the shop.

Don't recommend to leave the regulator there. They run hot in normal use, anything up to 70 degrees Celsius. They lose that heat through the metal plate on the frame. If they can't, they melt and take your alternator and battery with them. They typically only hold out around 30k miles either way. You can tell yours has already done that once as that's an aftermarket regulator.

The bike has 88,000 miles. I'm surprised anything works. I'll definitely screw it to a heat sink.

Thanks for the info the tank spacers, I should have enough crap lying around to make something work.

Should I bother filling the frame with some JB weld or something?

you should grind it out, and have someone tig a bead all the way along it.

but those frames are pretty sturdy, so unless you are slamming down from standups, ehh? jb welding it wouldnt hurt. can't say it would really do much though.

bike looks nice. you gonna hook up a damper?

IIRC, I've seen one of those frames cut open and the spars are quite sturdy. It's like an extrusion with a few different chambers, not just one open void. The tank gouge sucks, but I wouldn't worry about it.

Bike's looking good, man

That's in great shape for age and mileage.

Given the mileage and lack of history, it's probably worth looking at valve clearances, servicing the rear linkage, swing arm bearings, and steering neck. It'll ride nicer for it and breeze through that 100k.

It's also still in original brake lines so the fluid could be ancient. Plenty of stuff to go through. Or just ride it and go with"it'll be fine".

Thanks for all the support guys. I'll plan on getting the frame welded in the future and just leave it alone for now. I was looking at dampers but I'm a cheap bastard, I'll put some miles on it before deciding.

Definitely planning on checking valves and replacing/greasing all the bearings I can get to. The carbs and valve cover will come off probably next weekend when I get spark plugs and larger main jets.

Brake fluid and fork oil are next on the list. The pins are seized in the rear caliper, it tweaked over and dug itself in the rotor, I put some pictures of that when I fix it.

Depsite all the hate I seem to be getting around here lately, I have more experience with 929s and 954s than anyone here. 900 is just a fat 929/954. I have been dealing with cbr head shake for 20 years. The easiest way to deal with it cheaply is to get the stickiest tire you can, balance it perfectly, rebuild your forks perfectly, make sure your shock is fresh and properly adjusted, and then slightly over torque the top nut on the top bearing. As long as you have ball bearings it works great. Make sure you throw some fresh grease in their, and tighten it down until you have a degree of resistance in it. Then take the bike out and figure out what tire pressures work for you on that bike. I like low-mid 20s on cbrs when pushing them.

I flip bikes for a living. I get bikes with zero resistance and the front ends flop, and others with over torqued triples, and they grind. You can get away with a little torque. It works. It helps. Personally the best 954s I have ever ridden, and they were putting down in the 140s, weighing just over 400, wouldn't head shake no matter how hard you pushed them. But they were flawlessly dialed in. I have also had cbrs that tried to kill me the instant you touched the throttle, or took your hands off the bars. I had one that would tank slap ONLY on flat land accelerating through the 70-90mph window. Talk about some bullshit. Full tank slappers. No fucking warning. Bikes are very individual. Take peoples advice with a grain of salt unless they have dealt with hundreds of the ones you are dealing with. Personally I wouldn't put a damper on something unless everything else was dialed in first.
